If there's a lot of fuel onboard it's too heavy.
I mentioned it somewhere before - my 5.4 with Yamaha 90 + appr 75l of fuel had a weight of 820kg incl the trailer ..
That was really the BLANC boat without any electrics / electronics / safety equipment / anchor + line / paddles / fire extingisher etc ...
To put a SR 5.4 on a unbraked trailer is walking on very thin ice ..
You can do it-Doggypaddle's 5.4 is around 720kg inc trailer without fuel onboard from memory.
It's a case of getting a light trailer.
Mine is definitely over 750kg, probably closer to 900 with a full fuel load and gear onboard,but it's on a braked trailer.
If you were to tow with an Astra, it'd have to have a kerbweight of at least 1500kg before you could tow a 750kg unbraked trailer anyway.
Need spares,consoles,consumables,hire,training or even a new boat?
